The Red Masks can particularly scare away some low tiers of C*annibal enemies. On the other hand, with the Gold Masks, you can scare stronger and higher tiers of C*annibals. You can use the Gold and Red Masks when the C*annibals start acting as a horde and come in large waves. As you equip any of the Masks, the large group of enemies will stop attacking and identify you as one of them.

There is also an ongoing theory that wearing the Gold Masks represents being the leader of the pack. That’s because, with this Mask, the mutated creatures even start following you around.
